I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
This is an example of Speex;
An Audio compression Algorithm specifically tuned
for the Reproduction of Human speech!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.”

flu vaccine reminder
reminder to get your flu vaccine. now is the ideal time to do it in terms of timing, it will last thru flu season.
you really really do not want to have more opportunities to develop flu-like symptoms and be questioning whether its a cold, or influenza, or if its actually covid.
getting a flu vaccine is a vital part of helping stop covid-19.

I'll be joined by cal of https://blaseball.news, and we'll be talking about building tools and collecting stats about a simulated sport, as well as the strange niche of reporting on an ever-changing alternate reality
updated my bio to make it clear that I'll still post from this account periodically
